Owning more than one male beardie

Not open for further replies.


I was wondering how people who owned more than one beardie out there managed. I know housing them together is out but do you find the others get upset if they see a male out of his enclosure. Can you have one out in the same room as the other males enclosure?

I have a male and a female pair. My female I've had since March of this year and she's still a juvie. My male is approximately 4 years old and I rescued him last month. On first sight he started head bobbing at Ember and she responded with waving. About a week later (now) he doesn't head bob *as much*, but he still wants her (which he'll never win that battle).

I think a male/male pair may be a bit worst with the head bobbing displays especially if they're both feeling dominant and territorial. It matters on their individual personalities.

I have two males and a female. One male is going through puberty and is going nuts when he sees the female. Head bobbing and running around like a mad man. My youngest male just waves at both of them, he is very easy going. The female is the oldest and I rescued her last week. I just have one out at a time and each one gets lots of one on one attention.

I have 2 males and 2 females. One of the boys bobs at everyone. The other only sometimes, depending on his mood. My smaller male has been less stressed and more active since I moved him to a different room from the other male, even though they could not see each other.

I have a friend who needs to find a home for her male. I will have as peerage set up I just did not know if it would upset Odin to have another male in house.mi did not know if it would change their personality at all.

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate

What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
